Recently, however, the Los Blancos reject the rumors of having any interest in the player.
As they recently signed another Frenchman Aurelien Tchouameni from Monaco this week. Therefore, it seems that their midfield criteria have well been fulfilled.

The hope with which he was bought to Old Trafford in 2016, seemed unfulfilled. In recent months the fans also seemed content with the fact that he would be leaving Old Trafford this summer.
Pogba played his last match in the United jersey back in April in a disastrous defeat against Liverpool.
